Best chunky

After gobs of reviews and comparisons, indeed, our best option for chunky slip-on sneakers is the Nike Space Hippie 04. This model is one of the best options if you're looking for a slip-on model that offers a one-off style and comfort.

Conceived from Nike's commitment to a lesser carbon footprint, we love that this model is made with sustainable materials. From its recycled yarn and plastic bottle upper to the reused Grind foam midsole. 

Don't be intimidated by its beefed-up profile, as this model is the lightest among its Space Hippie siblings! It's so airy and gave us only an effortless walking experience. 

When warm weather days come, this sneaker is a must! Its knit upper offers an astounding amount of ventilation that keeps the feet moist-free and cool.

Underfoot, we are dumbfounded how it provides bouncy strides! Its innovative ZoomX cushioning is so soft and responsive that it gives a maximized energy return. Gaah, we just love it! 

This sneaker might be light, but it is heavy when it comes to style! It is SOMETHING ELSE, not your typical slip-on sneaker looks.

Enjoy bulkiness, hipness, and sustainability as soon as you slip the unconventional Space Hippie 04 into your feet!

It delivers unmatched coziness that makes any city strolling breezy! Thanks to its single-piece mesh upper that gently snoozles our trots, the day-to-day walk has never been this pain-free!
